How did you and John meet? Well we both worked together at a local casino here, he was a cook and I was a waitress. We didn't really get to know eachother until he became friends with my boyfriend whom I was ready to break up with at the time. John was really shy so it took lots and lots of flirting on my part to show him how interested I was...and all the drinking didn't hurt either, LOL
Honestly I never imagined this guy I was gonna have a "fling" with would end up being my soulmate, best friend, partner in life, and father to my kids!! But something about us just clicked and we've been together, very happily, ever since.
Have you gotten any cravings lately? Sugar, sugar and more sugar. I don't indulge too much besides a cup of ice cream here and there but for some reason I have the biggest sweet tooth! And I don't normally eat sweets!
Got any feelings on if this baby is a boy or a girl? I had a strong girl feeling right off the bat, then my hubby started telling me he thought it was a boy! I still think girl although I'm not going to go around saying it's almost 100% sure anymore!
How long have you and your DH been together? We have been married for 7 years (got married when I was 8 months pg!) and together for 8.
How did your kiddos react to the news of the new baby? How did you tell them? Emily, our oldest, was over the moon happy. I let John tell her one evening when her grandpa accidently said something about the baby, so she was getting the idea. We probably could've made something up to cover and waited but we decided to just go with it and tell her. I was really scared because I didn't want her to have to experience another loss, the last one was very hard on her. With Johnny, he knows there's a baby in mommy's tummy but has no concept of what that means. I always point babies out to him when we are out, though, and tell him how we will have one of those and he will be the big brother. He comes in our bed in the am and snuggles for a bit before we all get up and yesterday I told him that the baby will be sleeping in there and asked him where did he want to lay, he pointed to daddy's pillow! Looks like daddy is going to get some extra loving.
What nationality are you? Was there anything about your roots that your parents did to celebrate anything, for example, any ethnic foods or music? I am just your basic mutt...although my mom is half mexican she doesn't speak spanish or anything. She does cook mexican food and always has but as far as music I grew up with the Beatles, CCR, Yes, classic rock stuff...my parents were hugely into music and so am I.
